    21 H20 Sport OB

    ok, I’ll bite. I got $1000 off the real deal price and some things thrown in at cost. That was the “boat show” price at the dealer. That was the best anyone would do on a new H2O in spring.

    I have the ski/fish version of this boat in 21’. Excellent boat with the outboard. Easy to maintain, great on gas, winterization is a breeze. Yes the real deal pricing is just that. The price is the price, I called tons of dealers and it was the same story everywhere I called. ive had my boat in fresh and salt water. Never an issue. We get tons of complements on the boat.

    It is official.

    Going to be 72 this weekend. Thought about taking the boat out. Whats this snow you speak of? More importantly why would you want to live somewhere where it snows that much?

    Sea Story To Share

    Similar story in my H2O first time I took it out into open water, though I’m only 21’ open bow. Definitely wouldn’t take it out again if I see white cap anything.

    Sunesta 274

    You’ll probably be fine. It all comes down to your truck’s payload capacity (see sticker in driver side door jam) and tongue weight of the boat. You can probably tow it fine. You’ll want to see how well it handles and stops with that boat. Personally, I had an f150 with a very low payload capacity. It was loaded. With family and stuff in the truck, I had no capacity left to tow the boat I have. It was always a scary ride towing it at 70+. I upgraded to a 250 diesel, which is overkill. With the 250 I don’t even notice the boat behind me.
  6. Exactly. Limit the financing to say 5 years and see what prices do. I guarantee they go down.
  7. Financing is what drove the prices higher. You can finance a boat for 20 years now. Same with vehicles, once financing went from 36mo to 48 to 60 to 72 to 84, prices when up with it.

    Can a TACO pull my 244 Sunesta?

    I wouldn’t advise it. My f150 had issues going down the interstate with my boat. Plenty of power to pull it, I upgraded the brakes and it stopped ok, but wth family and gear I found I was overloaded. Check the payload capacity on the sticker on the door jam. Subtract out you, passengers and other stuff you have in the truck. Now what is left is what you can put on the tongue weight. I think you’ll find you’re overloaded. Now imagine if you will you are towing your boat and get into an accident. Won’t take a good lawyer to figure out you were over the gvwr. Your insurance likely will not cover you either (I checked on mine, they said they don’t have to cover it). I see folks towing with SUVs, 150s, and 1500s all the time on the road that are obviously overloaded. Better to go bigger than you need. I ended up with a 250. Had to make a fast stop on the interstate towing back from Florida this summer. Had I been in my 150, I doubt I would have stopped and kept the boat in control (80 to 0 fast). With the 250 it wasn’t that bad, but definitely noticed. No way I’d town that boat in a taco

    Can I tow it? PLEASE HELP

    I would say you can probably pull it, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I had the same issue last year, but with an f150. Stepped up to a 250 and I can barely tell it’s there now. That came in handy as I had to quickly stop once while towing this season, I didn’t flinch in the 250. If I was in my old truck, that would have been ugly.

    I’m in Georgia and we are fine. Just some wind and rain. Not uncommon for us.

    H2O 19 200 hp or H2O 21 250 hp can't decide?

    21. You won’t regret going bigger.

    Yamaha F150 or F200?

    Here’s a link to a thread with the performance differences between the two. Different boat, but gives you a good idea of where the differences are. Next to none other than top end. If the same boat one with the f150 and other with the f200, I’d get the 200 if the price was only a couple g’s different. I own one with the f150 and it’s a great boat and engine. https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/606212-yamaha-f150-vs-i4-f200-not-big-difference-2.html

    Check the payload capacity on the door jam sticker. Then subtract the weight of all passengers, driver and stuff in the vehicle. That’s what you have left for tongue weight. Single axle boat trailer is probably 400-500lbs. If your total weight exceeds GVWR, then you will have issues. My advice, get something else to tow with.

    Yamaha F150 or F200?

    What’s the price difference? I have the H2O with the 150. Kept up with my buddy’s boat with the Yamaha 200 just fine. Couldn’t tell a difference top end. Different boats, but still. All comes down to the price difference and availability. Both are darn near the same.
